Know how much holiday to give your staff
Most workers are legally entitled to paid holidays/annual leave.
From leave years beginning on or after 1 April 2009, a worker's statutory paid holiday entitlement is 5.6 weeks (28 days for a worker working a five-day week). This can include public and bank holidays. The entitlement for part-time workers is calculated on a pro-rata basis. Prior to 1 April 2009, the entitlement was 4.8 weeks.
This guide shows you how to calculate a worker's holiday entitlement and pay. It also explains notice requirements and how you may impose restrictions on when workers can take their holiday. Finally, the guide demonstrates how to pay leavers for any untaken holiday.
